    Hot minute, hot second, New York minute... i've heard it all... it means REALLY FAST!!!!!!!

    ie "I'd hit that in a hot second!"


    No no no, my friend, that's WRONG

    "hot minute" is intended to mean a longer than usual time
    i.e. I haven't seen that girl in a hot minute, i havent been to the gym in a hot minute.

    It's supposed to be ironic, and NOT mean fast. If you hear anyone use it to mean fast, they are wrong. Sorry

    No idea about New york minute; pretty sure that means fast.

    Now, according to urban dictionary's first definition, "hot second" DOES mean fast, and is different and not interchangable with hot minute. In that case, HotToddy was correct, my bad! But it also says that "hot second" means a long time also, and is interchangable with "hot minute", so that's a little ambiguous. So it seems i was right in that regard.

    You've SERIOUSLY never heard New York Minute??? Dude... there's a song with that title...

    "New York Minute" is a song written by Don Henley, Danny Kortchmar, and Jai Winding. Henley originally recorded it for his 1989 album The End of the Innocence. The single was a #2 hit on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart the following year, although it reached only #48 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    The song was covered by the Eagles (of whom Don Henley was a key member) on the Hell Freezes Over album and DVD, as well as Herbie Hancock on his 1995 album The New Standard. In 1998 the danish singer Sanne Salomonsen covered the song on an album of the same name, together with Chris Minh Doky.

    It is featured in The West Wing episode "Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail," a line from the song. It is also featured in the Friends episode "The One with Two Parts, Part Two".

    Lyrics
    Harry got up
    Dressed all in black
    Went down to the station
    And he never came back
    They found his clothing
    Scattered somewhere down the track
    And he won’t be on Wall Street
    In the morning


    He had a home
    The love of a girl
    But men get lost sometimes
    As years unfurl
    One day he crossed some line
    And he was too much in this world
    But I guess it doesn't matter anymore


    In a New York minute
    Everything can change
    In a New York minute
    Things can get pretty strange
    In a New York minute
    Everything can change
    In a New York minute


    Lying here in the darkness
    I hear the sirens wail
    Somebody’s going to emergency
    Somebody’s going to jail
    If you find somebody to love in this world
    You better hang on tooth and nail
    The wolf is always at the door


    In a New York minute
    Everything can change
    In a New York minute
    Things can get pretty strange
    In a New York minute
    Everything can change
    In a New York minute


    And in these days
    When darkness falls early
    And people rush home
    To the ones they love
    You better take a fool’s advice
    And take care of your own
    One day they’re here
    Next day they’re gone


    I pulled my coat around my shoulders
    And took a walk through the park
    The leaves were falling around me
    The groaning City in the gathering dark
    On some solitary rock
    A desperate lover made his mark
    “Baby I’ve changed. Please come back”


    What the head makes cloudy
    The heart makes clear
    The days were so much brighter
    In the time when she was here
    But I know there’s somebody somewhere
    Make these dark clouds disappear
    Until that day I have to believe
    I believe, believe


    In a New York minute
    Everything can change
    In a New York minute
    Things can get pretty strange
    In a New York minute
    Everything can change
    In a New York minute

    I agree. My gym partner and I don't always feel like working out the same muscle groups on the same night, so sometimes we workout together, and sometimes we don't...we don't have the same goals anyway, so it's not a big deal.

    I also go biking with the BF on nights that I'm not at the gym, which works out as well.

    My suggestion is to find other people to go biking with, so you have a back-up.

    BearCub, I am very eloquent. This should teach you to never question my diction again. "Hot second"/"hot minute" are generally used with at least a certain degree of irony/sarcasm implied. But, ignoring semantic and lexigraphic variations, can we circle back to the original question?


    HotToddy said
    However, after reading the responses, I've come to realize that I will never see eye to eye with most people on this. I will always ditch the gym for the opportunity to swim, run, or bike outside, or even do something more leisurely, like snowboard or go hiking. Today has a high of 80, low humidity, light winds, and is partly cloudy, so in my view, the perfect day to be outdoors (hence why I've got my laptop on the front porch with me).

    I do appreciate the few people who can understand my viewpoint. I guess my next question for you "gym bunnies" would be: whatever happened to "variety is the spice of life?", "Carpe diem", and all those other cliches? Is it something that you feel that you've lost, something you feel like you never had, something you're glad to be rid of, or something that you've sacrificed in pursuit of a different goal?

    I love bunnies!!!

    But seriously, my BF is a classic example of the routine at all costs type of person, i however, am completely opposite and will take any excuse to modify things to make them more fun. They gym is not a place for me to relax and concentrate, it is a place for me to zone out and empty my brain. I think a well rounded program depends not so much on a routine as on a well laid plan of action and an ability to accompish what you put your mind too. Part of the reason so many people hit plateaus in thier work outs is because they cannot break their routine and challenge thier body with different elements.

    I have to agree with your friend. I wouldn't want to change my routine one a days notice when I've planned a week in advance what I'm doing on which specific days based on what time I have and other priorities. And 3 hours? That's one-eight of the day, not counting travel and prep time. That's way too much to shift with so little notice, and I'd find that very unreasonable for a friend to ask me to do that.

    What even the once? What sort of friend are you? Can't you do anything spontaneously?

    Last Sunday we had beautiful weather in London and normally I'd go to the gym. But instead I phoned up my friend and said 'hey, let's cycle to the lake in Hampstead and go swimming'. And he agreed and we had a great time.

    What sort of great experiences in your life are you eliminating by structuring your life so rigidly?

    LOL... I hear ya
    But I do have to say that your friend isn't doing this to annoy you
    and it isn't because he's a dumb gym bunny either
    I think ...

    But when you've made the choice to live that lifestyle
    and commit to working out
    You do have to make sacrifices
    some make you unable to go out to a restaurant and eat anything that you see on the menu
    or stay out drinking til all hours of the night
    ... and unfortunately unable to drop workout plans to do something spontaneous

    No skinny dipping. icon_biggrin.gif

    But there were lots of gay guys at the ponds. And I bumped into someone I hadn't seen in ages who I quite fancy and we got talking and later we agreed to go on a date later this week.

    So, I'm all for spontaneity you never know what will happen. Whereas if I'd gone to the gym, it would have been the usual guys lifting weights. I can see them every other day of the week.

    DUMP HIM!!
    as your friend that is. Barring that he is a professional bodybuilder with a regimented time schedule, I can't stand people who are so uptight about getting to the gym. It's funny to me that the ones who are like this usually do next to nothing when they finally arrive to the gym. I can only guess that something is broken in their brain that makes them think being anal and uptight about going to the gym will somehow magically produce bigger muscles. These people make me laugh. I like to smear my blossoming personal life in their faces along with my awesome results to show them that a fitness conscious lifestyle was built to be fun not constraining.icon_twisted.gif

    That's ok, RedHeadGuy, the thought of you skinny-dipping with your mates is enough to make me wet, for different reasons!

    Hmm... well, I feel like it's pretty in-line with gym bunny culture to take a chance to be in the sun with other gays. And you were on the Heath on a nice day... ;-)

    But good to see London hasn't changed too much in my absence!
